20150309-193807.jpgWe have been learning about synonyms.
As a group, we listed boring and tired words that we often use in our writing. Some examples are sad, happy, nice, big, awesome and cool.
In pairs, we choose a word each. We then used a thesaurus to find as many interesting synonyms as we could.
We then used the computer program ‘Free Mind’ to create a map of all of the synonyms we could find.
Now, instead of using the same boring words, we can look at our synonym maps to make our writing more interesting!
